oUF AuraWatch  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.6.8-8
by: Astromech [More]

This is an optional addon for oUF by haste. The latest version was verified to work with oUF 1.6.8.

oUF AuraWatch adds the ability to watch specific auras on any unit of your choice. All you need to know is the spell ID!

Some uses include:

  • Grid style HoT indicators.
  • Crowd control warnings.
  • DoT timers.
All integrated within your unit frames.

By default, when an aura is applied to a unit, oUF_AW will display an icon letting you know it has been applied. When the aura expires, oUF_AW will display a faded icon, letting you know to reapply that aura. These affects can be customized in your layout. All icons are cleared when combat ends, so you can start each fight fresh. oUF_AuraWatch used the GUID of players and targets, making sure correct information is shown.

oUF_AW does not display numerical timers on its own. However, it does create a cooldown frame which, when paired with OmniCC by Tuller (or a similar addon), will create a countdown for you.

Additional options as well as an example on how to set up oUF_AW are located in oUF_AuraWatch.lua.

1.6.8-8
-Removed some legacy code from spell ranks. Be sure you use the correct spell ID!

1.5.2-7
-Replaced the numerous frame options with a customIcons option, which gives control of frame creation to the user. This is not backwards compatible! If you previously used hideCount, hideCooldown, or custom textures, slight alterations to your layout will be needed.
-Added Override- and Post- ResetIcon and ExpireIcon fields, which allow the user to better control how frames look when these events occur.
-Updated to oUF version 1.5.2 element standard.

1.3.28-6
Added hideCount and hideCooldown options.
Added a strictMatching option, which will watch auras based on spell ids instead of spell names if true.
Improved documentation in oUF_AuraWatch.lua.
Use new embedding technique.
Slight code improvements.

1.3.14-5:
Added an anyUnit option, which, if true, will display an aura no matter what unit it is from.
Fixed an error in the icon creating code.

1.3.14-4:
Fixed some typos so that the addon works like the documentation says!

1.3.14-3:
Allowed the layout to specify showOnlyPresent and showOnlyMissing on a per aura basis if wanted.
Added a new fromUnits field which specifies which units an aura can originate from.

1.3.11-2:
Fixed global oUF referencing and embedding errors.

1.3.11-1:
Initial upload.

Thats what I want it to look when done. Recoloring indicators may be a problem tho. Its just Photoshop yet.



Need a ignoreCaster = true/false variable per icon.

zork,

Yeah that looks good! Glad you like it.
Hmm is it possible to track boss debuff spellids aswell? For example Kel'Thuzad iceblock.

http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=27808

I am just asking myself...what string will the "caster" variable return if I have no unit set to show Kel'Thuzad and a raidunit receives a debuff from him. Will it return the mob_name or mob_unique_id or what? If its a dynamic id we have no chance to track that. But setting the focus to Kel'Thuzad first may help. Just surfed around wowwiki.
Patch 3.1 changed "isMine" to "unitCaster". It is now possible for addons to retrieve the unitId that casted the buff/debuff.
http://www.wowwiki.com/UnitId
Maybe it does return "npc", I don't know.

Well it would be better if we could set a varialble for each spellid if the unit who casted is important or if we do not need to track it. A global setting doesn't help much, I want it for hots, for example but not for specific raid debuffs.

Just added it. Works perfectly.

If you want to know how I implemented it check:
http://code.google.com/p/rothui/sour...bs.lua&old=410
and look out for aurawatch. Its active for class = druid only.

http://zorktdmog.zo.funpic.de/rothui...009_230106.jpg

I added it to focus, pet, party, focustarget. First I had it horizontal, but I like the vertical version better.

Awesome, I love it.

I see typos *oh noes*
line 109 it says 'showOnlyMissing' while it says 'onlyShowMissing' in the documentation. The same goes for present.

Re: Re: Question

I want to filter specific player buffs on units but I still want to keep the bufflook of oUF.
That's basically why I wrote this

Btw, is it possible to decide if the spellid we want to track is from unit = "player" only or from unit = "player" or someone else. (for the case I just want to track for buffs/debuffs active and I don't care who casted it)
There isn't an option for this at the moment, but I am actually in the process of adding it.

Question

Thanks everyone, glad you like it.

Zork,
You need to code which units for oUF_AW to look at in your layout. Just set self.AuraWatch for any units you want to watch in your layout's setup function.

There's an example on how to set this up for the target frame in oUF_AuraWatch.lua. If you want to watch every unit, you could just remove the

Code:
if unit ~= "target" then return end
line, and customize as needed!

Feel free to post here again or PM me with any other questions

Does this work for every unit spawned on screen, or specific units only? I mean do you go through oUF.objects to find all units available or do they need to be defined hardcoded?
